Came to Franklin to visit this weekend, after having moved away almost five years ago, for a wedding of some close friends. Had always admired the Carolina Motel when I lived here for it's consistently clean and well kept appearance when I lived here so I decided to book a room. I'm happy to report it is as clean and...

Reviewed 19 September 2016

My husband and I spent the evening here on 9/17/16. As soon as we opened the door to our room you could smell how clean it was. The bed was soft and comfortable. I was also surprised at the new Vizio tv on the wall. This place was great and we will stay here again.

Called ahead to get a late check-out and was told by attending phone desk clerk that would be no problem and he would note it on our reservation, when we got here the desk clerk (David) informed us that they don't have late check-out, and I am aware of additional cost and fine with it, this guy at the desk...

For people who want stars, this is a fine 3-star motel, but they know what they are doing and do it right. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable, with a duvet between two sheets. I always bring my own tea bags, and appreciated the hot water available in the...

Just spent five nights (April 24--29) at the Carolina Motel. This hotel is a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are freshly remodeled, extremely clean, and the beds are fantastic. This hotel is American owned and operated and you wont find a more helpful staff. There is a free daily continental breakfast to get you started and there is a...

I visited Franklin to celebrate my sister's birthday near her nursing home residence, but to get her out for a short break. Carolina Motel is close to many restaurants, shopping, downtown Franklin, and has a mountain view. The fire pit on Friday night made it feel like we were camping. This is the first place I've ever stayed that has...

I don't usually write reviews but this place was way more than expected. I travel for work a lot and have stayed in just every type of hotel you can think of, but this place was by far the cleanest place I've stayed. You can tell immediately that the people that own it take pride in their place. It is...

My husband and I were traveling home to Pennsylvania from a vacation in Florida and stayed at this motel. It was extremely clean and well taken care of. The large flat screen cable TV was super. The linens and towels were plentiful and smelled wonderful. The staff couldn't have been nicer. It was a VERY pleasant experience. Thank you, Carolina...

My family stayed there. They were here for my wife's memorial service. After the service I stopped by to tell them goodbye. I had my two little dogs in my truck with the AC running. The owner sent one of the workers over to tell me to leave because dogs are not allowed on the property. A sad day was...

I am very disappointed in your review of our hotel. The Trip Advisor forum has been designed for registered guests to write reviews based on their full experience of their stay with us. When a family member writes a review of our hotel based on a 10 minute experience I do not feel that it can be considered fair or...
